If you visited The Office Experience in Chicago you are going to want to plan another adventure because one of the regular-appearing characters on the show will be making an appearance at a ballgame. It won't be in Chicago, though. This will event will be an hour away from the windy city.

If you live an hour or more west of Chicago this is probably a closer and easier drive than heading to Chicago.

The Kane County Cougars will host The Office night on July 14, 2022. As a super fan of The Office got giddy like a kid in a candy store when I learned of this. At first, I didn't see there was a cast member coming to the game to meet and greet fans. After a little digging, I became ecstatic to learn exactly who would be there and I got more excited than Stanley Hudson on pretzel day.

So who is making an appearance at the 6:30 game in Geneva, Illinois?

That's right, Leslie David Baker, a.k.a Stanley Hudson will be at the game for a VIP meet and greet which will take place before the game. He'll stick around to throw out the ceremonial first pitch and the meet fans during the first two innings. You can find more information and tickets here.
